As I scroll through your various screens, I see lots of reference to strains that indicate “OG”.
I’m really sorry to prove myself such an utter bonehead, but what exactly does OG stand for?
Must admit, I’m feeling more than just a little red-faced on this one.
The only thing that I could come up with was Ocean Guard, or maybe Old Guard.
Any clues for the clueless would be most appreciated,
@timoteus So, I’ve run across the exactly same question years ago. “OG” means different things in different context.
For example, “OG” means 'Original Gangster" if we’re talking hip-hop…
HOWEVER, “OG” when talking about marijuana should be referring to “Organically Grown”. With that being said, that doesn’t mean if a strain is called “OG Kush” that it’s in-fact been Organically Grown.
Unfortunately “OG” has been bastardized like the word “Literally”. The meaning, depending on who’s using it, means different things. So one grower who is actually growing organically may call their strain “OG Kush”, because it’s literally been grow in an fully organic way. Whereas another grower may call their strain “OG” because well, it sounds cool.
Del Rosso was the first to cultivate Kush in California, sharing cuttings with friends and fellow growers, and renaming it OG Kush (OG being short for “Original,” not “Ocean Grown” or “Original Gangster” as is often rumored) to differentiate his Florida plant from phenotypes cultivated by other breeders.
